GameBrowser plugin broken since upgrade to 4.0.0.2

I have Emby Server and Emby for WMC on the same machine as all of my media. My GameBrowser.xml file was up to date with all of my emulators and local PC games and was working perfectly.

 

Since the upgrade to Emby Server 4.0.0.2, not a single game will launch, only showing a message that says "An unknown error prevented this game from launching."

 

The indexing used to only use the folder name for the title, but now it ignores the nice folder name and only associates the messy file name inside each folder, even on a PC game where the only file is game.gbwin making my whole PC game library a long list of games called "game". To even test the launcher's capabilities, I manually changed the title of one of the games to match the title of a games in my GameBrowser.xml file, but the log file reported "########## QUIT KEY PRESSED ##########" 5 times even though I hadn't pressed it at all.

 

So I disabled the quit key in the xml file and tried again with the same result, but with the following log file:

MBClassic-201201905ec1c8373a94c4e9c5b64c37e3cd30f.log

 

A debug message that shows up at the end of the log whether it is trying to launch a emulated rom or local pc game:

"GetMediaExperienceUsingReflection was unsuccessful"

GameBrowser.xml

I'm not sure it is going to help the GameBrowser situation but you should definitely update to the beta of EMC if you have updated your server to 4.0.

 

Thanks.

I was about to try this out also.  I was going to start with simply adding steam shortcuts, then packing on emulators.  I setup a steam server, and if you launch your games via the steam protocol, then you can stream them around the house without having install all of your games on all of your PCs.  Integrating steam content into Emby server would be really nice as my steam server could handle all the graphical heavy lifting, and emby could handle the launching, and metadata.
